Hanley Bug

Oh Hanley, I think you’re going to be my drama queen. At 7 months old you have already expressed to us that you want things your way and that you hold grudges. The problem is, I don’t have a flippin clue what your way is or what you want. You are a hard one for me to figure out. One day you like things one way and the next day you don’t. And what’s with this not eating thing? It’s getting worse and worse. Kid, you need food to grow…you’re too young for eating disorders. You look great as you are! The bottle really isn’t that bad. You didn’t like nursing so you really need to take your bottle. I get that you like cereal and baby food but you still need a bottle.
On the other hand, you are CUTE! I love love LOVE your big, round, blue eyes. Every time you see me you give me the biggest, “Hi Mom!” smile and you melt my heart over and over. It makes me smile when I lay you on the changing table, you take a big breath in and ‘talk’ to me as you make eye contact. I can’t wait to see what you’re going to look like (ok I can wait, just excited). You have red hair which really needs to start growing so I can put clips in it.

You are a rolling fool. I’m surprised you haven’t figured out how to roll to get to the things you want. Last night you almost army crawled and it made me so excited I clapped and made loud noise and you then were distracted by me. Oops. I have a feeling you’ll be up on your knees crawling in no time. You are trying to sit up but haven’t quite got the muscles for it. I see you being one to figure it all out suddenly and our house will never be the same. Although I don’t think you can do near as much damage as Hudson. And if you can, please don’t.

Hanley girl, I love you with all my heart and soul. I can’t believe how fast the first 7 months of your life went by. You have added so much to my life and you make me really happy.
